This section describes how to assign a new credential policy and new default credentials to a credential group. At installation, the system assigns a default credential policy to the credential groups.
Upgrades from 5.x releases automatically migrate application and end user passwords and PINs.
Before You Begin
To assign a default credential policy other than the predefined Default Credentials Policy, you must first create the policy.
The Find and List Find and List Credential Policy Defaults window displays.
Click the list item to change.
The Credential Policy Default Configuration window displays with the current settings.
Enter the appropriate settings, as described in Table 1, using these guidelines:
To change the applied credential policy, select the policy from the drop-down list box.
To change the default credential, enter and confirm the new credential in the appropriate fields.
To change credential requirements, check or uncheck the appropriate check boxes.
Click the Save button or the Save icon.
What to Do Next
You can assign a new user credential policy, manage user authentication events, view credential information for a user, or configure a unique password for the user.
Bulk Administration Tool (BAT) allows administrators to define common credential parameters, such as passwords and PINs, for a group of users in the BAT User Template. See the
Cisco Unified Communications Manager Bulk Administration Guide for more information.
End users can change PINs at the phone user pages; end users can change passwords at the phone user pages when LDAP authentication is not enabled. See the documentation for your
Cisco Unified IP Phone for more information.
